Karen Arthur - Homeward Bound Projects

Karen Arthur

Assistant Director of Migratory Species Section, Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment

Living in Australian Capital Territory, Australia 

Karen has always loved the ocean and so it was inevitable that she was drawn to a career focused on understanding and protecting it. She studied marine biology at the University of Queensland and went on to postdocs at the Smithsonian and University of Hawaii studying marine turtles, toxic algae and food webs.

After 10 years as a research biologist she shifted gears returning to Australia and moving into a policy role in the Australian Government where she provides advice on migratory species, conservation planning, and management of newly recognised threats to biodiversity such as light pollution. In her down time she loves taking her two young children to the beach, swimming and racing outrigger canoes.
